Spam content:

..oops, went too soon. I was going to say "only have to enter a basic plaintext captcha to posta anon.
So it could be easily defeated either manually or programmatically - I think it's always 421.
Presumably there haven't been enough serious enough spam attacks yet to make anyone want to do anything about it, so bug maintainers are just deleting the occasional ones that show up as they come across them.
Because even the most correct dependencies fail to account for programs/scripts that use conflicting temporary/auxiliary files.

Borrowing heavily from http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2007-03/msg00101.html and http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2006-07/msg00017.html I had submitted the following proposal as my project http://nrcfosshelpline.in/code/wiki/OS
I am a part of a team in India that is actively promoting the development of the Hurd and since I am already actively working on this task I request to be assigned to it.
Please feel free to ask me questions if I have left any questions unanswered.

The device driver glue code which we currently use in GNU Mach could be updated (read: most probably be rewritten). It could either be updated to a more modern Linux variant--like Linux 2.6--or one could investigate if writing glue code for e.g. FreeBSD is feasible. Or both of them.
